RBH Sound Inc. introduces the Architectural Cinema Series (AC) lineup of freestanding loudspeakers. These new loudspeakers offer RBH build and sound quality at a consumer friendly price point.
The AC Series is a sonically matched home theater loudspeaker system consisting of a pair of towers (AC-5T), center (AC-525), surrounds (AC-51) and a powered subwoofer (A-10S). All mid-bass drivers in the system use a polygraphite cone. The tweeters are 1 inch, high-quality fabric dome tweeters.
The AC-5T employs three 5 inch mid-bass drivers for bass extension down to 45-Hertz. The AC-525 uses two of the same 5 inch drivers for a seamless front soundstage, while the AC-51 uses one. The A-10S subwoofer features a 10-inch, Kraft Pulp driver powered by an internal 150-watt amplifier capable of bass down to 30-Hz.
RBH sonically matched the AC Series to their existing line of A-Series in-wall and in-ceiling speakers for consumers who want the power and flexibility of tower speakers in the front, but want their surround speakers hidden in the walls or ceiling.
Suggested retail pricing is as follows: AC-5T, $699 per pair; AC-525, $259 per each; AC-51, $299 per pair; A-10S, $499 each. All speakers are available in black or silver and are expected to ship March/April 2003.
